that doesnt surprise me at all

i mean come on, no one can deny that stoner can ride and ride very well but seriously his personality is the only thing that makes a rider who could be a legend, just a good rider.

shut up and ride the bike.

if u look back every interview is the same. the bike, the set up, didnt have this, didnt have that...BLAH BLAH. even in his final interview he complained.

miss his riding and skill. yes. miss his whining. HELL NO!

It's sad that people can't just let other people like (or dislike) people or things for whatever the fuck reason they want.

Riding talent /= personality. His whininess has absolutely nothing to do with how he rides. I think he'll basically be remembered as a prickly character who rode brilliantly when he had his day, kind of like Mick Doohan (Doohan will obviously be the more legendary rider though)

I was (am) a Stoner fan ever since he got into MotoGP, didnt care for his comments, but to be honest, I never followed them anyways. I respect people for speaking their minds, but I draw the line when sentences start about what others did wrong, rather than what the spokeperson could've done better.

All in all, I will not follow him in the car scene (dont think he will be that good/competitive anyways)

But it makes up the whole picture of his presence in the sport. He made his own happiness, or lack thereof, with the sport.
